Jim Lillis, Big Stax 1100 Day 2

Mike Murphy had opened the pot from early position and was shoved on by a short-stacked Lillis for ~250k on his immediate left. Action folded around and Murphy made the call.

Lillis Q♥J♦ vs Murphy A♦A♥ Pot: ~585k

Board: 2♥9♥9♦J♣4♠

Lillis picked up a bit of hope on the turn but it wasn’t meant to be. He is eliminated in 16th place for $4,436. That brings a pay-jump to the field and the next player out will earn $5,485.

The where was a floor ruling involved in this hand. Lillis had moved all-in without being aware that Murphy still had cards to his right. Murphy was in the process of raising as Lillis announced all-in thinking he was the first in the pot. The floor ruled that the all-in would stand.
